My 19 year old son loves second-hand shopping (mother like son!) and is always looking for a bargain so he was very excited about taking me to a place he had discovered recently. Off we went yesterday to a large shed not far from a local dump - it was full of "stuff" and with a little searching we found heaps of bargains - I was as excited as he was. I could not believe the total price. For everything below we paid $30 (US/Aus). I think I will take my eldest son on our next trip as he might find some things for his house.
|These are tall thin mugs, not chips - really nice for hot chocolate.|
|Rustic soup bowls - quite heavy, no chips in excellent condition. These will be great in winter with hearty soup.|
|3 pottery bowls - in perfect condition. We think they are hand made. I have my garlic bulbs in one.|
|One cute kitty (Japanese)- how could I leave her there alone. This vintage cat is selling on eBay for $19.00 in the US! She will be much loved in my home.|
|One sturdy basket in good condition! I have it next to my chair, very handy for the books I am currently reading, my pencils and paper, hand cream + my embroidery.|
This acoustic guitar was in excellent condition - my son thought it hadn't been played very much as it is hardly worn at all. It had only just arrived at the store, so we were very fortunete to get it as it would have gone quickly. He really wanted an acoustic guitar so he could learn more spanish music that he loves to play (his grandmother was of Basque hertiage, so I think it is in his blood!). Once he replaced the strings, the sound was excellent - this was a bargain!!!!! This was probably $30 and the rest was free.
